While out promoting the upcoming Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise has admitted that he could see himself back in action in Top Gun 2. “I hope we can figure this out and do it again,” Cruise said to MTV.
Top Gun arrived in 1986 and rumors of a Top Gun 2 have swirled for years. But, it appears that director Tony Scott and Cruise are ready to fly again. The impetus is first, to satisfy the Top Gun fan base that has remained loyal to the original and quietly clamored for a sequel for 25 years. The second reason is simple: Cruise wants to work with Scott again. “I want to make another movie with him,” Cruise said. “He and I haven’t made a film since Days of Thunder.”
What could fans expect from a Top Gun 2? “We all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way as we shot Top Gun,” Cruise added. “If we can find a story that we all want to do.”
